this international condemnation of russia's actions in ukraine. you have not had condemnation coming from china. china playing it very much on the fence. this is key for a number of issues. china and russia both have vetoes at the u.n. security council. both have used vetoes to oppose actions by other countries perceived to be interference in the domestic affairs of countries where as right now it appears we see russia doing exactly that. the other thing is that china, as you know, jake, we've talked about this before, they have their own territorial land grab in the view of some going on in asia right now over these disputed islands, the senkakus, the battle between japan and china, another one in which the u.s. is very much involved in. >> jim, thank you so much. >>> the situation in crimea could get more complicated as russia considers the possibility of annexing into russia. >> what we are hearing is that a group of parliamentarians are working on a piece of legislation that would define the process, streamline the process for when a territory outside russia wants to be annexed, volunteers

to stand with the international community in handling the message with ukraine, and it was a tough message in the 90-minute phone call? >> yes, it was a tough message and we know that the presidents spoke a week and a day ago, but developments have been move sog qui quickly in ukraine with the russian involvement that the president came down hard today in if statement. he said that the united states condemns russia's military intervention in the crimean territory, and i want to put this up on the screen, because this illustrates the statement heref. just how concerned the white house is about what is happening by russia. the united states calls on russia to deescalate tensions by withdrawing the forces back to bases in crimea, and to refrain from interference elsewhere in ukraine. the reason i isolate that particular sentence from the statement, jim, is because it is a couple of things. one is that at this point, does the white house really expect that russia would pull all of the forces off of the streets of crimea? russian president vladimir putin say saying in his own statement through
in the crimea section of ukraine. the "new york times" and cnn have a lot of -- are built for this international story. msnbc showed once again it's not really a news channel. it's been in taped programming much of the weekend. overall, there are few journalistic boots on the ground. i think the situation is murky and that makes it hard to cover. >> it is hard to cover unless you're covering it through social media. but i think this is going to be one of the biggest tests of president obama's career as president. and that the coverage that we're seeing is not as big as maybe arab spring and maybe because it broke on a saturday. yesterday was the day and there weren't a lot of people in the news room. i think you'll see a lot more on monday. but i also think our appetite for international news has not, as an american people, always been as strong. >> that is certainly true because the situation with the coup or the toppling of the prime minister in ukraine certainly has been brewing for some time now. and it's been covered, but it hasn't been a dominating story. now, the white house put out this

to put the economic squeeze on another country during an international dispute, what are the tools of the trade? or lack of trade? ukraine, russia, the u.s. and the european union on this inside story. >> hello, i'm ray suarez. in the bad 'ol days of the soviet union the country was known for the shoddiness of its manufactured goods. nobody wanted the second rate autos, appliances, ball point pens, shoes, but now the ussr is stuffed with things the world does want, aluminum, copper, natural gas. columnist tom friedman said president vladimir putin has turned his country into a mafi mafia-run petrol state. putin has made his country steadily relianc reliant on natl resources than human ones. why is that important to you? russian has decided to pick a fight with ukraine and supporters around the world, and how those supporters express their displeasure may effect russian economy with risks to its neighbors. >> reporter: global powers to the east and west discuss ways to prevent escalation after the weekend takeover. pro russian troops have taken over and russia said it's not their mi

with the international community to address their concerns about the safety of russian citizens in ukraine. let's give russia the chance to make this better and deliver a clear message of consequences if they don't. this of course can't happen without the support of our european allies and as chairman of the foreign relations committee son europe i'll be on the phone this week with european parliamentarians urging them to join us in proposing new sanctions on the russian economy. i know there is hesitance in europe due to the integration of russia into the european economies, but this crisis should frankly matter more to europe than it matters to us. five years ago, it was a laughable proposition that russia would invade ukraine, but it's happening now, and it may be unthinkable today that russia in five years is going to move on a nato ally, but if this aggression goes unchecked, then the future can be very perilous, even for our friends in europe. finally, a word on the politics of this crisis. i've listened to some of my good friends on the republican side try to score political points in connectio

back away from confronting illegal international behavior. i hate to use cliche but the ukraine situation same old same old. and putin knows it and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction, joining for reaction, fox news analyst charles krauthammer. where am i going wrong here, charles? >> i think you have got a right talking about individual nations. i wouldn't blame nato as an institution because nato has one purpose, to defend its own countries against soviet and now russian aggression and that it's never been challenged but it did succeed 50 years. the russians never crossed the line into berlin. they never crossed the line into germany. the problem for nato is when it acts out of area. meaning in afghanistan or ukraine. remember, the bush administration wanted to bring ukraine in to nato. so that would have triggered a nato response, the invasion that we are seeing now. but the europeans did not want to get involved in ukraine because they thought it was dangerous. so, they are very much unwilling to risk anything. however, i do think for the polls and the o

for the situation we're in, we should be holding hands trying to get ukraine and get the international community out of this mess. >> one of the in my view more outlandish claims by some republicans is that obama is weak simply because he didn't go and bomb syria when he had the chance and emboldened putin to take the action he is doing now. i think that's pretty ridiculous. what is your reaction to that? >> i mean, we are still cleaning up the mess of iraq decade and a half later. and so, the notion that the only way that you can portray strength in the world is by invading and bombing other countries is ridiculous. the war in iraq and frankly the mismanagement of the war in afghanistan has cost this country dearly in terms of treasure, reputation an lives. i'm glad that we didn't militarily intervene in sir why and my constituents understanding there's a different power to be exercised around the globe, one that actually comes with economic diplomacy which is what we're going to do to try to move russia back off the precipice of crisis in ukraine, enact crippling sanctions on the russian governmen
